Clear all tomato fo­liage

Garden News (UK) - - What to do -

Once you’ve eked out all you can from your tomato plants, it’s time for a clear out. Pick off any last re­main­ing green to­ma­toes and ripen them in a bag on the counter in the kitchen, take out canes and give them a wash, then chuck all the old fo­liage on the com­post heap. If your plants have had any path­o­genic dis­eases this year, then dis­card fo­liage in with coun­cil waste. The same ap­plies to com­post – if it’s healthy used com­post, re­use it on bor­ders or on the al­lot­ment but if soil-borne disease has been present, throw it away.
